NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion...updated 
National Weather Service Paducah Kentucky 
624 PM CDT Thursday Aug 27 2015 


Update... 
issued at 624 PM CDT Thursday Aug 27 2015 


Updated the aviation discussion for the 00z taf issuance. 


&& 


Short term...(this evening through Saturday night) 
issued at 245 PM CDT Thursday Aug 27 2015 


The 12z models are in good agreement with the synoptic situation 
through Saturday night, but there are some differences in the 
sensible weather over the weekend. 


Surface high pressure will gradually shift eastward out of the 
region, as a mid/upper-level trough pushes east southeast into the 
region by Saturday. South winds will develop over most of the 
region Friday and continue through at least Saturday night. The 
weak cold front associated with the mid/upper-level trough is 
expected to stall out and eventually dissipate before reaching our 
area. 


The south winds will lead to a nice warm up Friday into Saturday, 
both for highs and lows. With a relatively dry airmass over the 
region, would normally lean toward the warm side of guidance for 
highs, but guidance has been too warm in our hot stretches so far 
this Summer, so will stay closer to the consensus for now. We 
should climb to near normal Friday and above normal Saturday. Some 
90 degree readings will be possible Saturday. 


Still have a sliver of slight chance pops along the northwest edge 
of the region from southeast Missouri into southwest Illinois on 
Saturday, as the upper-level system enters the region, but really 
expect that the entire area will remain dry. Have slight chances 
over most of the region Saturday night, as the GFS, in 
particular, is generating some quantitative precipitation forecast over the region. 


Decided to ignore the 12z nam's quantitative precipitation forecast over the southern pennyrile 
Friday night and Saturday. Not real keen on any development Friday 
night, but if there is enough low-level moisture, there could be 
some healthy instability to play with down there Saturday 
afternoon. Will leave it dry to match our neighbors in that 
region, but won't be surprised if a chance is eventually added to 
the forecast. 


Long term...(sunday through thursday) 
issued at 245 PM CDT Thursday Aug 27 2015 


The Med range models depicted departing ewd-moving shrtwv energy 
aloft in the pah forecast area during the latter half of the 
weekend. This area of lower mid level heights is shown to combine 
with a weak low over the Gulf, producing an overall "weakness" in 
the mid level ridge over the srn Continental U.S.. in addition, anti-cyclonic 
flow aloft (carrying erika) over the sern Continental U.S. Is expected to push 
some deep moisture nwd through Tennessee and nwd. This arrangement may 
allow some showers and tstms to develop in the heat of the day on 
sun, mainly in the ern half of our region. Some of this convection 
may linger into Sun night, but exactly where is a guess. 


The weakness in the ridge will continue well into next week. The 
models had slightly different placement of "valleys" in the ridge 
from time to time. However, there appears to be enough (capping) 
warm air aloft after Mon to preclude even slight chance pops through 
day 7 (thu), though it will not be impossible for an isold shower or 
tstm do develop somewhere in the region. Confidence in this part of 
the forecast is limited. At this time, the presence of Erika on the 
East Coast is not expected to alter our weather, though it could if 
the predicted path changes. 


Expect near seasonable temps and Summer humidity during the extended 
period.

Aviation... 
issued at 624 PM CDT Thursday Aug 27 2015 


High pressure at the surface along with clear skies and calm winds 
may produce LIFR/MVFR fog at kcgi/kpah respectively between 09-13z, 
otherwise VFR conditions expected through the period. Calm winds 
through the evening and overnight should pick up out of the south 
southeast aob 8 knots around 15z.
